Crawford, Greg. “VAuntoldWebBanner.” VIRGINIA UNTOLD: THE AFRICAN AMERICAN NARRATIVE DIGITAL COLLECTION, 2016, www.virginiamemory.com/blogs/out_of_the_box/2016/02/03/virginia-untold-collection/.

Through The Library of Virginia, a collection of primary narratives from African-American voices has been digitized and formed into:

Virginia Untold: the African American Narrative Digital Collection 

From here, readers can find firsthand accounts from free or enslaved persons, images, as well as official government documents. Through the compilation of these records, the story of free and/or enslaved people’s lives are able to be remembered but it is through their own writings and words that they are able to take back the narrative as their own.
